Love Real Food Group
Members only page
Each week you will receive an email with information about Fussy Eating and ways to support your child's exploration of new food
To get the most out of this group,
we suggest -
Parents are strongly encouraged to repeat aspects of the group at home in the week following. A child’s food repertoire is more likely to increase with exposure to various different "new foods" when repeated in a relaxed home setting The exposure to the new or "disliked" food has to be constant and incentive free.
Take ideas from the group sessions, and implement them at home on regular basis.
Be creative with new foods and adapt a healthier lifestyle around eating.
The program is not only for the kids to try new different food, but also for the parents to take away new ideas, recipes, and healthy food alternatives that fussy kids will actually try.
Document your child’s progress at home on the workbook to track their milestones and success, and utilise it as an encouragement and motivational tool - this will be available in week two.
Do not give up on a food item/type. Repeated, constant exposure in a non-coercive manner is necessary for a child to accept a new foods.
Set a good example by preparing and eating the food yourself. Research indicates that the extent to which fruits and vegetables are present and readily available and accessible in the home correlates positively with the level of consumption in school-age children
Actively participation in discussion with the OT, nutritionist and fellow parents about the progress at home.
